Fiona's Comments

A well conveyed interlacing of classical and jazz. Intense, inspiring and fresh.

About the Album

The title of the track 'Moving Mountains' suggests the image of a passing horizon in its undulating patterns moving in and out of alignment. This was the mental imagine composer Jasmine Lovell-Smith had in mind when she conceived of the layered rhythmic motives that sparked this composition. Recorded by Lovell-Smith's NYC based quintet 'Towering Poppies, this track also features the Mexican-based string quartet 'Cuarteto la Matraca.' The track is representative of the new directions explored on Towering Poppies' latest release 'Yellow Red Blue,' out on November 4th 2016. Their new release retains the lyrical and song-like qualities the band is known for, while adding rich new layers and intriguing complexity as they explore a wider sound palette and more extended compositions. Jasmine Lovell-Smith: soprano saxophone; Josh Sinton: bass clarinet; Cat Toren: piano; Adam Hopkins: bass; Kate Gentile: drums. With special guests Cuarteto la Matraca Elena Makhnev: violin; Raúl Moreno: violin; Rolando Vidal: viola; Jesús Gutiérrez: cello.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
